This is really spooky, I just finished posting my ‘Robots inspired by animals’ when I stumbled on this story with in 5 minutes!

“General Dynamics will build robotic vehicles to conduct surveillance and other security tasks for the Army under a five-year contract that could be worth as much as $40 million.

The semi-autonomous security vehicles are designed to perform a number of surveillance activities without the aid of a human driver, including checking for intruders and monitoring stored ordnance.

The contract calls for General Dynamics Robotic Systems of Westminster, Md., to produce 24 vehicles, spare parts and training and technical services – all part of the Army’s Robotic Mobile Detection and Assessment and Response System.

MDARS diesel-driven vehicles have a payload capacity of 500 pounds. They are equipped with sensors and a real-time obstacle avoidance system, and can operate at speeds up to 20 miles per hour for up to 16 hours without refueling.”
